What are endergonic reactions? How can endergonic reactions proceed in organisms?
An endergonic reaction is a chemical reaction where the reactants have a lower free energy than the products. Enderonic reactions are coupled to exergonic reactions which cause the release in energy and therefore the reactions are able to proceed in organisms.
(Am i on the right path here? is this making sense? Am i leaving anything huge out or is this pretty much answering the question?)
